PNCU issues warning for fraud e-mail and text

Fraudulent e-mails and text messages have been sent to an unknown number of members and non-members informing them that their accounts have been suspended until they contact the financial institution.

If an individual responded to the email/text, they were directed to a fake online banking site or toll free number where they were to submit their account, credit card, and/or PIN causing the member to fall victim to yet another scam.

There is also a text message informing the recipient that their accounts are suspended pending investigation of fraud. The same as in Scam #1, leaving a number to call. This number goes no where but makes record of phone number calling.

PNCU has taken steps to shut down any online websites these emails may link to. Please delete and block any texts you receive.
